Testing a mapping

Testing a mapping

After you complete a mapping and you confirm that the mapping is valid, you can perform a test run to verify the results of the mapping. Perform a test run of a valid mapping to verify the results of the mapping before you create a
mapping
task.
When you perform a test run, you run a temporary
mapping
task. The task reads source data, writes target data, and performs all calculations in the data flow.
Data Integration
discards the temporary task after the test run.
You can perform a test run from the Mapping Designer or from the
Explore
page.
To test run a mapping from the Mapping Designer, perform the following steps:
  1. After you save the mapping, click
    Run
    .
  2. Select the runtime environment and specify values for parameters, if any parameters are in mapping.
  3. Click
    Run
    .
To test run a mapping from the
Explore
page, perform the following steps:
  1. Navigate to the mapping and in the row that contains the mapping, click
    Actions
    and select
    Run
    .
  2. Select the runtime environment and then click
    Run
    .
Note that if you select
New Mapping Task
instead of
Run
,
Data Integration
creates a
mapping
task and saves it in the location you specify. For more information about
mapping
tasks, see
